8 Cowboy Boots That’ll Make You Want to Try the Trend
Cowboy boots are having a moment, and the evidence was all over the spring 2019 street-style photos that emerged from Fashion Month. We’ve seen vintage and contemporary versions paired with everything from prairie dresses to denim. They’re a major contender for our go-to fall shoe.
If you didn’t grow up in cowboy boot-country (i.e. the word “y’all” was never a part of your vocabulary), the trend can feel a little costume-y. To make your look more Soho-chic than Sundance Kid, don’t be afraid to pair them with suiting materials and blazers for a new spin on business casual; avoid other Western elements like fringe jackets (too much of a good thing); and ultimately, it’s about the boot itself, so get yourself a good pair.

If you want to try the trend, we’ve edited the list of options to our eight top picks. Below, the best cowboy boots from Ganni, Fendi, Isabel Marant, and more.
GANNI Marlyn 45 Leather Cowboy Boots
This traditionally styled boot with a twist by influencer-favorite brand Ganni became an instant classic as soon as it debuted earlier this season. The high contrast white and deep brown panels make these shoes impossible to ignore, but it’s the sweetheart cutouts and wing stitching that ultimately won us over.
Sam Edelman Winona Metallic Textured-leather Ankle Boots
Aeydē Kate Patent-leather Ankle Boots
Patent, another go-to texture for fall, compliments this minimal, nude boot perfectly. If an over-the-top cowboy boot is too much of a commitment, this subtle version is an excellent choice and will be a natural fit for your existing wardrobe.
Frye Flynn Bootie
Isabel Marant Denzy Point-Toe Western Knee Boot
Fendi 110 Logo Cowboy Boots
If you’re looking for the ultimate in logomania, these cowboy boots by Fendi are the perfect pair. From the western-inspired silhouette to the unmissable repeating ‘F’ pattern, this item is 2018 in a nutshell.
